South End, Boston –
A sports bar for the trendy set, Stats Bar & Grille offers just what the name says – scores, drinks, and grub – all in an uncluttered setting that puts the focus squarely on the flat-screens that dominate the walls and the bar in the center of the main room.
During dinner hours, laid-back jersey-wearing fans and Southie locals stroll in to watch a game over cheap bottled beers and appetizer specials, which range from standard buffalo wings to dishes with an upscale twist like the tempura artichoke hearts.
By the time the post-show wrap-up is over, however, the place has switched gears and turned into a lively singles scene.
After-work yuppies turn their attention from the TVs to the ladies, shooting winks across the room as the joint swells with flirty conversation, and Top 40 tunes replace the sports commentary. A few steps up, a second level filled with tables offers an escape from the mob of shot-slinging coeds that gathers below on Fridays and Saturdays.
Those looking for a more relaxed experience show up on Sundays, when groups of pals in jeans and hoodies settle in at the wooden high-tops to catch the game or just get a slow buzz on as they check out the passersby through the sunny picture windows facing the street.
A perfect place for the sports lover who is also shopping for someone to love, Stats Bar & Grille is as much about gleaning stats as it is about scoring digits.
Tired of tallboys and watching your wallet? A pint of the rotating beer of the month pours for $3. Not a fan of the current month’s special?

Tons of flat-screens tuned to all major sports. Top 40 booms after the game. Trivia night on Tuesdays.
Traditional American bar bites including burgers, sandwiches, and pizza, with more upscale entrées like steak tips, ahi tuna, and coconut shrimp.
Brunch menu $10–$15, appetizers $8–$13, soups/salads $4–$11, sandwiches and burgers $9–$13.50, pizzas $8–$14, entrées $12–$17. Beer $4–$5, wine $6–$9, cocktails $6–$10. All appetizers $5 M–Th 5–8pm.

Any time to catch a game of interest, Tuesday nights for trivia, or Friday and Saturday nights to clink bottles with sexy strangers.
The Junction (110 Dorchester Street) rivals the number of TVs at Stats and draws a similar crowd, but adds live music to the mix Wednesdays through Saturdays.
